How the occult has been fully integrated into many Christian lives and fellowships
by Sandy Simpson
This DVD is a message based on this article.
The Bible is quite clear about occult practices.Neither Israel nor the Church is to have anything to do with the way the world tries to gain secret knowledge.The Gnostics were and are known for promoting new revelation that is either loosely tied to Scripture taken out ofcontext or not at all.The Israelites seeking information from the dead or in omens were judged harshly by the Lord who had warned them numerous times to stay away from that stuff.
Yet due to the influences of heretical teachers in the New Apostolic Reformation, Word of Faith, Emergent Church, and the New Age many have been successful in getting lots of churches and denominations into occult practices that have been thinly disguised as “Christian”.Many of those who follow these people, I’m sure, have no idea how far they have strayed into the occult.
First I want to give the dictionary definitions and then Biblical warnings against these practices.Then I will give examples in the churches taken mainly from the ElijahList e-newsletter.
List of Practices Detestable To God
Deuteronomy 18:9-12 “When you enter the
land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate
the detestable things of those nations. There shall not be found among
you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one
who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets
omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist,
or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable
to the Lord; and
because of these detestable things
the Lord your God will drive them out before you.
Isaiah 8:19When they say to you, “Consult the mediums and the spiritists who whisper and mutter,” should not a peopleconsult their God?Should theyconsultthe dead on behalf of the living?
Using the above list from Deuteronomy and Isaiah, let’s take a look at each individual practice.
